 Filer's Files #8 -- 2001, MUFON Skywatch Investigations
George A. Filer, Director, Mutual UFO Network Eastern
February 19, 2001

intelligence analyst I have experience in taking the findings
of others and putting them together to develop a possible
scenario. Recent scientific discoveries are starting to make
the history of our world and our relationship to our
neighboring Red planet more clear. I feel we may have more in
common than is generally realized. In the history of Earth,
much of the great scientific and historical knowledge was
collected in the religious scriptures that repeatedly tells of
extraterrestrial visitors.

My own photo analysis of Mars images of Cydonia and other areas
suggest to me that Mars was once inhabited and defended. The
layered terrain on Mars show a striking resemblance to
sedimentary deposits that form underneath the water on Earth.
NASA is slowly revealing what has been known for a decade that
there was and still is water on Mars. These apparent lakes on
indicate that Mars likely harbored life in the distant past.
Where there is water, microbial life is likely to have thrived.
Fossils giving proof of life likely exist in the sediments.
Rocks that blasted off Mars from some type of explosions were
eventually found on Earth. NASA scientists claim microbial
evidence essentially proves life once existed on Mars. I
hypothesize that intelligent life either visited or developed
on Mars. One area on Mars where there are strong indications of
intelligent life is the area known as Cydonia. The famous face
on Mars is in the Cydonia area and can possibly be explained
away as a trick of nature, but new images show an eye socket,
and a well formed eye pupil, an eye brow, and even lips. The
Cydonia area also has structures that appear as a fort, a
possible city mound, a dozen outpost mounds, a pathway and
pyramid like structures. These do not appear as natural

My hypothesis is we are looking at artifacts of an ancient
civilization probably defended against attacks. Excellent
researchers such as Dr. Horace W. Crater of the University of
Tennessee Space Institute and Dr. Stanley V. McDaniel, Dr. Mark
Carlotto, both of Scientists for Planetary SETI Research
(SPSR)--Erol Torun, Vincent DiPietro and Gregory Molenaar and
many others have accomplished brilliant research pointing out
the mathematical and geometrical anomalies indicating
artificial origin of the area. Dr. Stanley V. McDaniel asks,
"Does the mound geometry conform to some understandable grid?
Is the mound geometry unique? Is there any recognizable
cultural or symbolic quality in the patterns that might provide
a clue to possible meaning or utility?" See

FORTIFICATIONS ON MARS - My answers to his questions are yes.
While in Vietnam as the 7th Air Force Intelligence, III Corps
analyst, I spent a great deal of time examining photographs
looking for North Vietnamese and Viet Cong rocket sites that
were used for attacking Saigon nightly. The enemy would launch
the rockets from mounds leaving small burned marks showing the
rockets had been fired from that position. I felt the Communist
122 mm rockets were personally aimed at me providing incentive
to discover the enemy operations. Eventually we were able to
figure out the North Vietnamese movements and construction
patterns of the mounds. They brought the rockets to about ten
miles from Saigon using small boats on the various streams.
They set up and fired the rockets killing my neighbors nightly.
The Communist movements, their construction of small mounds or
hills could be observed in our daily photographic footage.
Eventually we were able to attack the most likely rocket
movements and sites.

My analysis of Mars images picked up similar mounds arranged in
a geometric pattern indicating alien artifacts and possible
intelligent life. The mounds on Mars are not unlike
fortifications used by the military on Earth for centuries.
They have built similar numbers, with precision, location and
geometry to establish over lapping fields of fire. Nature tends
to do things by chance, and these structures appear to be
designed as either offensive or defensive positions. The
general arrangement is in variations of triangles. In one of my
favorite military books, "The Tools of War" written by James R.
Newman, he provides the reader with a series of drawings of
fortifications that were used by Europeans preparing defensive
bastions throughout the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries, I
have visited some of these fortifications with angled walls in
Germany and France. The structures on Mars remind me of these
diagrams. Many of these fortifications are designed using
various triangles geometric variations, because they provide
strong defensive positions and fields for cross fire. Often the
infantry and ammunition were hidden underground. Only the
cannon would be above ground and these were often covered in
various ways. I suggest we are looking at ancient Martian
fortifications placed in a triangular pattern with key points
about two miles apart. In Europe, many similar fortifications
were still in use during World War II. The French Maginot line
comes to mind with some ninety percent of its fortifications
underground. On Mars, there are what appears to be openings to
underground facilities. It seems too much of a chance for
nature to have built twelve mound like fortifications in a
roughly geometric and isosceles triangular configuration at

What appears has a fort, pyramid, city mound, various
fortifications all suggest that intelligence at one time
existed on Mars. I admit this is not easy to see unless you
make the assumption that intelligent life once existed on Mars.
Then the signs of their presence are suddenly apparent. The
structures appear to represent architecture designed to protect
its occupants from weapons fire, bombs or possibly meteorites.
Many appear pyramidal in shape with deliberately shaped sloping
walls. These structures are similar to Bastions designed for
warfare where the slanted angles cause artillery fire to glance
off. In any case they seem deliberately shaped as opposed to a
natural formation and designed to deflect flying objects. In
Vietnam, I analyzed the effectiveness of our air strikes. I see
evidence of similar attacks and bombardment. This bombardment
is likely from meteorites, but they might be huge bomb craters
from a war in the distant past. I count at least a dozen bomb
craters or meteorite strikes in the fortifications. Mars has
always been known throughout history as the planet of war,
perhaps mankind was provided this information by visitors.
These images suggest that life once existed on Mars, but this
is not our only evidence.

Phobos 2 took infrared photos of a possible underground city on
Mars. Photos shown on Canadian TV, show an infrared scan
radiometer image of the Martian surface depicting clearly
defined rectangular areas. The film showed chess board like
straight channels resembling city blocks. The infrared film
measures the heat radiated from a two hundred fifty square
miles of checker board square like parallel lines and
rectangles. The corresponding surface features taken by regular
cameras provided no indication of intelligent life. Dr. John
Becklake of the London Science Museum stated, "The city-like
pattern is 60 kilometers wide and could be easily be mistaken
for an aerial view of Los Angeles." It is my opinion that the
data is too geometrically regular to be formed naturally and
that much of the Martian civilization moved underground. The
Soviets were then shocked when almost immediately after the
infrared images were taken by Phobos 2 that satellite stopped
functioning. Embarrassed the Soviets released most of the last
taped television transmission sent back to Earth by Phobos 2
before it fell silent forever. On March 25, 1989, Phobus
photographed a dark shape described as a "thin ellipse" showing
what appears to be a gigantic cylindrical spaceship or huge
cigar-shaped 'mothership'.

In his careful words to 'Aviation Week and Space Technology',
the chairman of the Soviet equivalent of NASA, referred to the
last frame, saying, "One image appears to include an odd-shaped
object between the spacecraft and Mars." This "highly secret"
photo was later given to the Western press by Colonel Dr.
Marina Popovich, a Russian astronaut and pilot who has long
been interested in UFO's. At a UFO conference in 1991, Popovich
confirmed that their satellite had been destroyed by the alien
vehicle. These photos can be seen at www.filersfiles.com

I might remind my readers that at this time our world was
locked in the Cold War. Soviet and American forces were
prepared to destroy one another but now Russia and Americans
are together in space building a new space station. At the time
President Reagan understood the situation when he spoke at the
42nd General Assembly of the United Nations. Sept. 21, 1987,
and stated: "In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we
often forget how much unites all the members of humanity.
Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us
realize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our
differences would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from
outside this world. And yet, I ask you, IS NOT AN ALIEN FORCE


Red Setter writes that, "Already biologists have figured out
that we were formed suddenly by hybridization, rather than
gradually by Darwinian means." See American J. Human Genetics
2000, authors Royce and Baird from Leicester, where they say
that man came about "through hybridization of two widely
separated primate lines, which had not interbred previously for
1.9 million years." How then could those two primate lines be
naturally interfertile? This result argues to some extent for
Sitchin's hypothesis, of hybridization between tall blond
aliens (the "Anu" people) and a local primate, homo erectus.
Indeed, one of the two sequences is clearly African in origin.
However, we have not yet measured the DNA sequence (near
telomeres) for a blond alien, hence such a hypothesis cannot be
formally proved. Also, the new Human Genome sequence shows that
almost half of our DNA comes from invading elements; while over
200 of the 30,000 genes come from bacterial-like sources by
unknown means. Further scrutiny of these complex data may show
that our species was gene-engineered in the past. Some of those
CG-rich genes, e.g. HIC-1 as a tumor suppressor, reduce the
risk of cancer and thereby increase lifespan greatly. I expect
that fewer and fewer people will believe in Darwin as time
proceeds. Best, Red Setter

Editor's Note: Darwinian Theory essentially explains that you
and I are here by chance. That once we were ape like creatures
and before that worms or cells in a primordial soup. But recent
DNA discoveries indicate that Homo Sapiens have had the same
DNA for 200,000 years. Suddenly, a couple hundred thousand
years ago the brain size of primitive hominids jumped one-third
in size and our ancestors became relatively intelligent. I
suggest this happened by design, due to an outside force. The
scriptures state it was angels sent by God. Strangely that face
on Mars looks human and more like my ancestor than the apes. I
think our view of history needs some rewriting.


STATE COLLEGE - The witness reports my grandfather and I were
walking home from church around dusk on February 3, 2001, when
two bright oval objects caught our attention above the tree
line. We thought at first it was an aircraft from the local
airport. But, because of the tremendous acceleration of the
objects, we knew that it could not be an airplane. As the
objects passed almost directly above us, we heard no sound at
all, even though they were traveling at a high rate of speed.
As they sped away, they seemed to change direction very
abruptly. The weather was overcast, so we could not maintain
visual contact for very long. Thanks to Peter Davenport

BUFORD -- Brant Connolly says, " I am reporting on a sighting
that occurred on February 12, 2001 at 5:20 PM about 45 miles
Northeast of Atlanta near the tip of Lake Sydney Lanier." As I
was leaving work that evening to go to the gym, I noticed an
aircraft coming from the East, traveling in a Westerly
direction. I was facing to the South at the time. The aircraft
was putting out a very thick double vapor trail which looked
kind of odd, so I stood and watched it. The aircraft was about
maybe an eighth of an inch long at arm's length, without much
detail other than wings. But what caught my attention next was
NOT normal. Something else moving caught my eye and I saw two
dark "disk" shaped objects moving towards the southwest, at a
very slow, controlled speed. The disks were about the size of a
pencil eraser at arm's length and about 2" apart, one slightly
above the other. There was NO sound, no lights, no wings or
other protuberances. The objects were in sight for about 1-1/2
minutes until they were lost to view. Weather conditions were
mostly clear with a nice blue sky, and the sun was starting
down. The damn things flew practically right over my head and I
didn't see them until I noticed the movement against the sky.
"The sun clearly reflected off of the airplane, but these
things were DARK-NO REFLECTION at all!" Thanks to Brant


FT. LAUDERDALE - The witness was driving on I-595 when he saw a
strange flying triangle shaped object with 3-4 lights on it
February 5, 2001, at 7:30 PM. I would guess that it was 75-100
feet in altitude, I thought it might be a light pole top but as
I got closer I could see that it was just hovering. I slowed
down and it stayed there even as I passed it. Then I saw
another closer to the airport in the distance and thought maybe
they were planes but neither was moving. I thought maybe they
were helicopters hovering but they usually have blinking lights
and make a little noise but I didn't hear anything.


ADAIRVILLE -- I saw a total of three triangular shaped craft
over open farm fields on February 5, 2001. Two remained at a
distance of about a half a mile away from the roadway. One was
about 300 yards from my vehicle and was triangular in shape. It
had a dome top with a yellow light on in the dome. It was
perfectly still hovering 50 feet above the ground. It did not
have any engine noise and was perfectly quite. On the tips of
the triangular ends was a red light on one side and a blue
light on the other. It appeared to be as large as a medium
sized aircraft but not the shape of any aircraft that I have
ever seen including the Stealth. The lights began dimming and
the craft began crossing the road and headed west silently and
then flew away very fast. I have seen these several nights
while driving home from work.

BOWLING GREEN - Another witness reports, I was outside looking
at the moon February 7, 2001, when my kids asked if they could
stay out and watch the stars. I looked to the right of the Moon
and saw a cigar shaped object in the sky moving east. It turned
left towards the Moon and flew in front and just above it. It
turned to the west, and changed from a cigar shape to a
triangle shape craft. The lights were red and yellow, and then
changed to blue and back again. As it flew just above the Moon
it looked a little bit silver as the light may have reflected
off it. The craft stopped for two seconds and the moved again.
It seem to jump forward for a foot and in just a flash it was
gone. The craft made no sound, I know it was not a plane since
they fly over all the time. The object was 4 inches long with
my arm fully extended. Peter Davenport spoke via telephone with
this witness, and found him to be quite precise in his
description of the object observed by him and his children. He
was quite convincing. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

CHILLICOTHE -- "Philip E. Diehl" wrote to Dave Vetterick
stating, I was in my backyard in Chillicothe Ohio at 6:41 PM on
Dec. 24, 2000, looking at the stars when I heard a faint 60
cycle hum overhead." I looked over in time to see a triangular
shaped craft move quickly from due north to due south. I have
seen many aircraft in my 53 years, but none that could move so
fast or that low that quietly. It was triangular shape with
rounded points. It had three large, but very dim lights on the
underside that could have been exhaust ports. One in the nose
and one on each (for lack of better word) wing. This could have
been some secret government craft? I don't know, but I only
know what I saw Thanks to Dave Vetterick


ROCKFORD --Lightfate reports scores more residents contacted
the Rockford Register Star Tuesday with personal accounts of
having seen strange lights in skies on February 10, 2001.
Photographs in Tuesday's paper by the Register Star's Gary
Carlson showed orange-gold lights making curious patterns in
the Northeast sky. On February 14, Mark Bonne wrote in the
Rockford Register Star that. " The odd visions continue to
baffle many, but a new theory has begun to gel in response to
the latest reports of bright lights in the night sky. Several
sources speculated that orange and gold glowing orbs spotted
Saturday night were helium balloons carrying flares or candles,
likely launched from someone's back yard as a novelty or prank.
More than 40 people some from as far as Byron and Caledonia
contacted the Rockford Register Star to relate accounts of a
phenomenon that started New Year's Eve 1999 and returned twice
in as many months. Lee Carlson said four amber-colored lights
floated past his Hillcrest Road home. I heard them pop as they
went by and saw them slowly burn out," said Carlson, who
suspects the balloons landed on Harrison Avenue. Duane Ingram,
a physics and astronomy professor at Rock Valley College, said
he doubts from descriptions he's heard that people are
mistaking stars, constellations or planets as the phantom
lights. Ingram said juvenile hijinks seems a more plausible


Kevin McClellan writes, "I was shocked to read about your
report about invisible aircraft." It parallels my experience so
closely, I could have written that account. I've never seen an
invisible aircraft before (ha ha). Last week, I saw a
northbound vapor trail being formed. I've had a lifetime
fascination (obsession) with aircraft, so I stopped to notice
it. Like your experience, the aircraft was invisible, yet the
vapor trail still formed. When I first saw the trail forming in
the distance, I got my wife's camera and 500 mm telephoto lens.
Looking through, I still saw no plane, just the vapor trail. I
then called my wife, who came outside just in time to see the
plane appear right in front of our eyes. I took a couple of
pictures. The plane had four engines, and was a white, standard
jetliner/tanker/commercial aircraft. When I thought about why I
didn't see the plane, I wondered if the atmosphere could've
somehow naturally masked the plane from my sight. I considered
it doubtful, since it remained invisible from the horizon until
it was straight over my head, and because of the immediate
transition from invisible to visible. So active camouflage is a
possibility. I first read about that several years ago, in a
cover story of 'Popular Mechanics' magazine. But why would
(presumably) the military want to conceal an aircraft over a
big city?

Someone with access to lots of white tanker aircraft has been
systematically spraying over densely populated areas, for the
past few years. I didn't believe it at first, until one year
ago, when I looked up to find an "X" in the sky that turned
into a grid of white lines. Unlike other contrails, this grid
of vapor trails increased in size, until they spread into a
wispy cloud cover, with a nice 'rainbow ring' around the sun.
For 28 years, I have lived near three international airports
(OAK, SFO, San Jose), and Moffet Field (Navy Aviation, NASA
Ames). With my lifelong fascination for aircraft, I think I'm
qualified to say that these vapor trails were not created along
the usual flight routes. After about a month, they stopped
spraying in the San Francisco Bay area. Then last November,
they began again, usually 2 or 3 days a week. I've taken
several photos of them as they turn the spray on and off. After
a while, it became like sport, trying to catch them 'in the
act'. That's why I grabbed the camera for this latest plane.
Normal vapor contrails don't "turn on or off." By the way, the
day of my "invisible plane sighting" was yet another "spray
day." A couple of hours afterward, the sky was again covered
with a grid of vapor trails. After reading and observing, I've
come up with a theory. I think it's merely a secret SDI program
to place a catalyst in the air, to enhance the effectiveness of
an electromagnetic 'boundary layer' in the upper atmosphere.
China and Russia would be upset if they knew we had an
operational Star Wars system. Solution? Keep it secret, even
from American citizens. And that, my friend, explains the
invisible aircraft. Thanks to Kevin McClellan


NORTH DEVON, ENGLAND -- Farshores reports, The sighting of
strange lights spinning through the night sky was caught on
video camera by an amateur photographer. Jo Sherlock has
described her close encounter with the UFO, which happened on
Tuesday, January 23, as a strange experience that left her
feeling "really weird" and her camera batteries low. There were
lots of very bright green and blue lights in the dark sky. I
had my camera around my neck and the flash went off three
times, without me touching it. "I felt really weird and I
thought, 'where am I?', even though I was standing in my
garden. "The object came closer and it started to spin like a
Catherine wheel, standing up vertically, not spinning around
flat like you see in movies. It then went away from me, stopped
spinning, and went really small." Jo claimed that when she went
back outside after briefly going into her house, the wind was
blowing heavily when previously it had been quite calm. The
feeling she received from seeing the lights, which she filmed
all the while, disturbed her most of all. She said: "I just did
not feel myself, I thought it was getting at me." Thanks to

Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that
were caught on recent Shuttle video footage. Jeff has over an
hour long tape of UFOs shot in space. Jeff spends hundreds of
hours watching the shuttle broadcasts from space and is now an
expert on NASA missions and even those onboard the shuttle are
unlikely to see what Jeff does. Using Jeff's directions you
will be able to learn the difference between space junk, ice
crystals and real UFOs. One segment has 24 UFOs watching the
shuttle from space. I feel confident we could go into a court
of law and convince any jury that there are UFOs moving at high
speed around the Earth. Send $25 to: Jeff Challender 2768
